Learning Adventures Daycare took an adventure through the post office on Tuesday, May 18. Diane James, Lead Clerk, invited the Gothenburg Times along for the tour.
Q: This spring I’ve started to realize that, sadly, our family has allowed Memorial Day to become nothing more than a day to celebrate the onset of summer (and eat too much). Even though our kids are fairly young, I want to help them understand what this holiday is truly about. How can we recapture its significance?
Dudley Elementary students enjoyed their lunches outside on May 14. The day was a partial school day for all students and ended with them being released for the summer. When the Gothenburg Times stopped by to take a photo of the seventh graders, since they missed taking their sixth grade class photo last year due to COVID, the students were laughing and talking about their summer plans. Immediately after the school year ended, you could see students wandering around town with fishing poles or their bikes. (Photo by, Ashley Mohler)
Social Media isn’t only for teens these days. It is a source of power for local businesses that the Chamber of Commerce is urging Gothenburg to use to her advantage. The Chamber of Commerce partnered with the Sun Theatre to host a panel of four local businesses that have seen an increase in business since starting up their social media pages.
On Thursday morning, the Gothenburg Chamber Ambassadors presented the Gothenburg Historical Museum with a Thank You For Your Faith Award. This award represents all the hard work the museum’s volunteers put in. Even though the pandemic kept them from opening in 2020, they remodeled the basement, created new displays, and gathered new artifacts. The Historical Museum’s doors officially open to the public on May 18. They will be open from Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Photo courtesy of Deb Egenberger)
